    Every time the Mrs starts her W203 C180K, we here a rough thud exactly as the engine comes to life :ban:

    Sound is coming from engine bay; could it be an engine mount?

    Turns out to be the alternator pulley! Anyone know the part number or where I can get it from?

    Yes, I did. It mentions the C180K but will send him a message to confirm it is actually a Bosch item & compatibility.

    I found another with similar pricing who seem to be electricians that state they have fitted 100s!

    They did get back to me regarding brand & confirmed it is in fact Unbranded, so not BOSCH! I did tell them they should not put down BOSCH brand in listing :ban:
